Every filmmaker brings some fundamental film theory to their cinematography. Whether it is the shot size, camera framing, or camera angles — they all add up to give each shot meaning. In this episode of The Shot List, we will look exclusively at cinematography techniques and camera angles in filmmaking.
Camera angles in filmmaking have certain characteristics that every filmmaker should understand. Visual storytelling is dependent on how you use the camera to tell a story. Whether you use a high angle shot, low angle shot, birds-eye-view shot, over-the-shoulder shot (OTS), or a direct overhead shot to capture a scene, that decision brings with it the concept of “perspective.” With Dutch angle shots (aka Dutch Tilt), you’re relying on cinematography techniques to bring a sense of imbalance or tension to a shot. Camera angles and techniques like these can elevate the script and the scene in ways that only visual storytelling can provide.
When filmmakers fully understand directing, cinematography, visual storytelling, and camera angles, they have the power to turn their filmmaking into something great. Check out our previous episodes from The Shot List on Camera Shots and Camera Framing. And stay tuned for the following episode on Depth of Field and Focal Length.
